fiscal cliff. senator corker has done some very good work over the last several months in a variety of areas in fiscal matters. a proposal of his that has attracted my support which he will describe is a proposal to help make the medicare program solvent by reducing the growth of out-of-control spending by nearly $1 trillion in exchange for the expected request from the president for a $1 trillion increase in the debt limit. taking these two provisions together over the next few weeks will provide certainty for the economy, will be the linchpin for a budget agreement that will get the economy going again. republicans and the two of us have said we are ready to do a whole variety of things to do this, but we have to address the medicare fiscal cliff, or the seniors or soon thereafter young americans will be pushed over the cliff and will look at us and wonder why we did not do anything. i am proud to join the senator in support of his proposal, and i would like him to describe it and say whatever he would like to say. >> thank you, lamar. it is a tremendous pleasure to serve with lam

in the fiscal cliff negotiations. national security is also on the line with massive cuts at the defense department as part of the deal. leon pineda is prepping to send layo layoffs. >> if there is a deal done that doesn't set aside thense cuts because we already cut 489 billion out of the defense department i am disappointed as the president as commander-in-chief and disappointed with the republican party for letting this happen. >> sequestration was the penalty they imposed on itself last year when they failed to find $1.2 trillion of cuts they live with. now mhalf are directed at the pentagon but the dramatic across the board cuts can be offset by raising taxes on the rich. >> if we have raised revenue by the wealthy paying more that is sufficient to turn off the sectsec quest tore the automatic cuts. >> senator graham told me he thinks it is possible to find 600 billion cuts elsewhere to suspend for a decade but a bipartisan agreement probably can't be reached until february or march. peter doocy, fox news. >>> 17 after the hour. still ahead is one of your new year's resolutions to s

we'll go over the fiscal cliff and the inaction of congress has the potential of plunging the united states into another recession. that said, they can't afford to becoming a reality. >> so far they have been very fortunate that the markets have not reacted with panic. you have not seen any plunge on wall street and the like but once you go over the cliff, especially if it is not just a matter of a day or two to allow for a house vote, but if it is really the case that politicians here in washington are so dysfunctional, kelly, they can not get the people's business done, i think then you will see a market reaction that, as you describe it, could plunge the country back into recession and it is not just the united states. remember, we're the world leader in terms of so much when it comes to the economy. it could cause worldwide implications. europe already is on the verge of trouble. to have the united states go off the edge would be catastrophic, for the world, for the global economy. kelly: juan, i was talking to a very good friend of mind who lives here in the united states. he is
